Healthcare industry is subject to extensive regulation at both the federal and the state level. There are various projects trying to benefit the healthcare segment via decentralized platforms conducting ICOs.
Now, only the Care.Wallet 1.0 is ready. It is not possible to test the app now, the team only gives a short demo video of the product.
The team does not give an estimation of the size of fees collected. The adoption of the business model is subject to heavy regulations from the state.
The amount of tokens reserved for the team (18%, 180000000 CAN) is a relatively large number. The existence of two different digital currencies may confuse some costumers. The project post-money valuation, which is 100M USD, is way above the median number for comparable projects.
The project team is spread around 3 locations which may cause discoordinations and slower pace of project development. It is not clear who is responsible for blockchain technology development competencies in the team. The web development TL has degrees in economics and law, though he had some previous programming experience.

Solve.Care creates a decentralized and distributed platform for administration of healthcare and benefits programs.

Care.Cards are equivalent to apps in an app store that can be downloaded from the Care.Marketplace), and -Care.Vault (data management module of Care.Protocol) that offer a new approach to administering benefits and keeping all parties in sync without the need for a centralized record keeper. Solve.Care platform will also use Smart contracts to implement business logic specific to Care.Protocol pairs.

The clients will pay platform fees for license, subscriptions and service fees for configuration, extension and integration. The subscribers will pay subscription fees for wallet and cards and transaction fees for payments and other fee based actions.
